Describe the two most interesting or unusual chapter activities this year:


In April we have a banquet to induct our new members and to award math scholarships for the year.(


In the spring our chapter joins forces with the math club to challenge the math faculty for a game of softball and a grill-out following the game. This year the game was cancelled due to weather but the grill-out did proceed.

Do you have any news about current students or recent graduates? For example, scholarships or other awards, acceptances to graduate school, paper presentations at conferences. :
